Intensify the Flavor of Root Vegetables

“To intensify the flavor of root vegetables while creating a creamy texture, salt-roast the vegetables. Place a layer of kosher salt onto a rimmed sheet pan or cast-iron skillet, then situate your favorite hearty root vegetables into the salt. Pour more kosher salt on top to cover the veggies fully, then bake until the roots are fork-tender. Remove from the salt and peel back the outer skin or exterior layer with a paring knife and serve with a drizzle of olive oil.”
